    Maybe you can help. I just got this chicken. She is a flyer. Very docile and calm. Pretty small. Can you tell me what breed she may be?

    Thanx for any help you can give me.

    Yes, she should be able to fly very well... and she'll be a good mother too.

    Someone told my husband it's a chiana (sp) or giana (sp)? is there such a thing? Is that what it's called in Spanish?

    what you are trying to spell is "gallina" it is a spanish word that means "little hen." the two "l"s are pronounced like a "y"

    that is a generic term that can apply to any female chicken.

    That hen looks like an Old English Game Bantam, she has white legs which seems a bit unusual to me but I am no encyclopedia when it comes to old english and color standards, etc.
